Idaho Auto Auction President Steve Marlow led a climbing expedition with Bill Harris and Mike McCormick, scaling Mt. Adams in Eastern Washington, a 12,400 foot peak.

“I was looking for a trigger mechanism to motivate myself to get back into shape,” explained Harris, owner of Harris Brothers Used Cars. “When you make a commitment to friends, peers and business associates, it’s both pressure and motivation not to let them or yourself down.”

Harris lost more than 25 pounds during his five months of training to prepare for the climb.
